You have it correct, macerator moves the nasty matter from the head to the blackwater tank, gravity takes care of the "dumping the tank" operation. Dead battery would render the flushing of the head inop. In the sailboat however, we are almost always boondocking while underway, and flushing is pretty low amp draw, but you make a good point.

Well I was thinking we were the youngest family to own an airstream but Pharmgeek and TavnAsh you look to be pretty young. We went to a local AS Rally in Cassville Mo and it seems the average age of the members there was 70 (nothing against 70 year olds just at the time my wife and I turned 41) don't get me wrong we had a good time and we had just gotten our trailer and they were tons of help with setup and shortcuts but its sweet to see a few younger families getting one. Pharmgeek we love the new bunk house model but we are just getting our 2005 set up the way we like it... Nice to meet yaal. That is all.

I'm over the hill now at age 30

Any thoughts on leather - light vs dark?

I'll be at canopener rally - probably will be pretty young - that's ok - there are a few of us not yet eligeable for AARP

My thoughts and this is coming from a guy with 4 kids almost grown now. I would go darker. It's warmer looking and would be easier to hide accidents that your going to have with 2 young kids... That's my 2 cents. Wow 30 that was over a decade ago for me.

We second darker leather. I am 37 and my wife is 31. Hopefully we can hook up with you guys in the next few years... We live in Puerto Rico for my job, but the Bunkhouse is up in Forida (our home when we visit the states). Next year we plan on doing some rallies, be nice to meet some younger AS families. Are you guys members of any clubs?

Dark leather.

We have the tan and we travel with a black cat. We keep it covered with towels.

We are members of Air Midwest and the AS National. We fly fish a lot and have a small stream that a rally just happen to be at. It would be cool to hook up. We are from Missouri.

We have a light tan interior on our Bunkhouse and it has worn really well with 5 girls in 7 years.

Love the aluminum on your entry door and the international windows!! That is in the list for us to do! We are from Florida, so we want to join a club up that way. I grew up in an old 31 my folks owned, we are trying to see if we can find those numbers from an old picture an research if they are still available for the bunkhouse...

safariSS - wow - 5 girls! thats alot of estrogen

Good looking bh there...looks great...glad you like the tan and that it has indeed worn well...

Im torn about color still...based on your reply im sure either leather option will hold up fine....Ill ponder on this more...not sure how annoying it is to change my order with the dealer...should not be that difficult I suppose....

I am not a member of any club yet...not sure what clubs I would join really.

Most of our travels will be local weekend frequent stuff, but otherwise three 1 week trips per year, or two 1 week trips and a scattering of 3-4 day weekends...I am 6 years in at my job..at 15 years I get another week - something to look forward to

all you bunkhouse folks really swayed my final decision on the bunkhouse...we are going to have a ball...hope to meet some of you for sure...would love to meet some folks with kids of course as well....feel free to swing buy my house and stay over if you ever pass through Birmingham...

I might take you up on that come by the house thing some day.
There are trips in that general direction I want to make one day.

For sure be cool to swing by Birmingham. Haven't been there. Passed through AL but haven't really spent much time there. Still working bugs out of ours a year later. People didn't take the best care of it. For something that has only been stayed in a few times it looked like somebody lived in it for years. But it's all good now. Once the floor gets recovered it will be back to like new.

SS was the door screen something you had made or is it something we can order? Love it.

If anyone of you Bunkhouse owners are in the Joplin, Mo area swing by. We have plenty of room.

Pawnguy...I bought the screen door protector from Airstream about 5 years ago. They have offered a couple of versions. I think David Winnick made them for Airstream ( designer of the 75th annv. Bambi). If anyone gets down to Birmingham go to the Barber motorcycle museum. ..awesome!

We have the 2005 Bunkhouse with the 2 chairs and the table. We are thinking we would like to take out the table and chairs and try and find a couch. Does anyone have any idea where to even start to look for a couch? Thanks

We have the same and would love to remove them. Thought of different chairs, but like the idea of the couch.

Maybe a general RV furniture supplier or even a Ikea futon ?

We thought the same. The chairs just got in our way. Last winter, we pulled the table and removed the chairs. My daughter and I built a couch using the folding hardware used in the Eddie Bauer edition. Our approach was very similar.

We just returned from a trip last weekend when one of my daughter's friend sleep on the couch.

If I can figure out how to post images, I will do so...

I guess the obvious (buying the couch from Airstream) is not something you are interested in? We ordered ours through an Airstream dealer.

We had the same configuration in our 2005 bunkhouse with the two chairs and the table and swapped it for a jack knife couch back when we purchased our unit new. We thought it was a great improvement and have not been sorry with the change.

I would think that there would be RV supplies as the other posted suggested. Good luck!
